Pooja Soni

Everett, WA

Georgia Tech


It’s no surprise that Jimmy Rane Foundation scholars are doing big things after college graduation! That is certainly true for scholarship recipient Pooja Soni, who accepted her first job out of college at The Boeing Company to become an engineering project manager for the Global Engineering and Technology department. 

Pooja’s fast start on a successful career is particularly special because she intends to “give something back” to the Jimmy Rane Foundation. Pooja has partnered with Boeing, whose corporate giving program will equally match her contribution to the Foundation.

“The question isn’t why would I want to give back to the Foundation, but why wouldn’t I?” Pooja said. “It is because of the Jimmy Rane Foundation that I was able to attend the college I attended (Georgia Tech) which landed me my first job at Boeing.”

Pooja graduated from Georgia Tech with a Bachelor of Science in Materials Science and Engineering in May 2011 and is currently living and working in Everett, WA. Recently, Pooja traveled to India for two weeks on a special projects team to locate the best products for Boeing to use for their equipment.
